LIGHT MAY BE THE CULPRIT OF YOUR PAIN
Why is it that when one looks at a bright light, such as the sun, one feels pain?
Recent research indicates that there are separate pathways between the eye and the brain, one for vision and another that causes pain – presumably to stop you from staring at the light that damages your eyes.
However, for a portion of the population, this pathway is hypersensitive and triggers pain even under otherwise normal lighting conditions. This results in light sensitivity (photophobia), migraine, or other light sensitive conditions.
BLOCK THE LIGHT THAT TRIGGERS PAIN
The good news is that only a small portion of the light spectrum is responsible for light sensitive reactions.
Dr. Bradley Katz, a founder of Axon Optics, is a neuro-ophthalmologist at the University of Utah and studies this pain pathway. Because of his work, Axon Optics has developed the FL-41 lens to block the problematic light.
SEE THE CLINICAL RESULTS
This is what can happen when you put on this eyewear.
Dr. Katz and 9 other academic researchers studied how this type of lens affects patients with a light sensitive condition called BEB. By wearing the lens, the patient’s saw a 2x improvement in their severity of light sensitivity compared to wearing regular grey lenses.
For migraine patients, a study performed by researchers at the University of Birmingham, England tested a group of migraine sufferers by having them wear FL-41 lenses. Participants experienced a reduction in the number of migraines, from over 6 episodes per month to under 2 episodes per month.
WILL IT WORK FOR YOU?
Axon Optics’ team has fine-tuned the lenses to block the light implicated in triggering and exacerbating migraines.
More than 80% of our customers report that the lenses improve symptoms of photophobia and migraine headache.
For some people, the improvement can be dramatic, allowing individuals disabled by headache and photophobia to return to work and other activities.
Discussion on Light Sensitivity, Migraine, and Treatment
NOT ALL LENSES ARE CREATED EQUAL
Axon Optics Spectrashield™ FL-41 lenses are proprietary. The lenses are used by thousands and offer a relaxing rose-grey hue with unique spectral characteristics. Our lenses are available with advanced ophthalmic coatings to reduce glare, scratches, and smudges.
One of Dr. Katz’ early research studies was to determine the quality of FL-41 migraine lenses from different vendors which are offered in hues of orange, rust, or even green. He was surprised to find wide variations in the quality, spectral characteristics, and optical densities of lenses purchased from different optical shops and laboratories. You can trust that Axon Optics delivers the best lens technology based on clinical work from its technical team.Shop Page
